We're working to finalize arrangements for the host 2012 facility this year (location yet to be announced), and there's something we'd like your feedback on...
As you know, we go to great lengths to keep the cost of the event as low as possible, and one of the greatest expenses is the venue itself.
Summer weekends are prime-season for reserving retreat and conference centers, so one option that's surfaced this year is the option of having the event midweek; Tuesday thru Friday instead of the traditional Thursday thru Sunday.
Depending on the facility we choose, a midweek schedule could reduce registration costs by 25-30%.
Homeschooler's like to save money, so the midweek option is compelling, but on the other hand, it would require everyone to take a couple more days off of work, school, etc., so we wanted to reach out to you for your input.
What do you think?
Are you thinking about coming to the 2012 National Reunion?
If so, would a ~25% reduction in cost with a mid-week schedule increase or decrease your likelihood of attending?
Update: We've added a handy little poll option here - please vote, but also weigh in with your comments in reply - it's always good to hear what you're thinking!
